IRS Gave White House Thousands of Documents on Taxpayers

The IRS improperly turned over thousands of confidential tax documents to the White House for review, according to information obtained from a lawsuit filed against the U.S. Treasury Department's inspector general by the legal advocacy firm Cause of Action, exposing a pipeline of communication between the two, the Daily Caller reports.

“[T]he Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) informed Cause of Action that there exist nearly 2,500 potentially responsive documents relating to investigations of improper disclosures of confidential taxpayer information by the IRS to the White House,” Cause of Action noted, according to the Daily Caller.


Such documentation, including the exchange of confidential information between White House policy adviser Jeanne Lambrew and former IRS official Lois Lerner, came to light after it was revealed that the the IRS had likely targeted conservative groups for review, including one that had sought in a 2012 lawsuit to overturn Obamacare's contraceptive mandate, the Daily Caller noted.

The Justice Department has asked for a longer window under which to review the newly found documents before releasing them publicly, the Daily Caller said.

The Washington Examiner's Paul Bedard, in his "Secrets" column, called news of the leaked documents a "shocking revelation."

Having spent my last 8 years prior to retiring and almost 10 years after in the Washington DC area, plus having an unfettered access badge to go into ANY government building unescorted, I am sick to death of the shenanigans that go on there. 

New members of congress go to DC thinking they are "going to change Washington" and the first thing that happens after they get there is they are pulled into the "cloak room" and told "Listen, sonny/sister, if you want to be here two years from now, THIS is the way you're gonna vote or you'll NEVER get on any worthwhile committee and your light will be under the bushel basket till you leave!"

They haven't even been installed yet and all the new members the Tea Party helped get elected (just as they did in 2010) have been compromised and chastised!  "Cry-me-a-River" Boner is Speaker again and Mc "Con"well is Senate Majority "leader"!  They have something on someone that is keeping them at the seat of power.  They have indicated that they have NO intention of listening to the voters and haven't got the balls to confront Obozo. 

Sadly, we are in the 239th year of an average of 240 years that a Democracy or Representative Democracy exists.  There are still 2 years left of the tyrant's reign prior to allowing him ample time to create an incident where martial law can be declared, the military has already been stripped of any potential threats from command leadership, the military is totally demoralized and those that remain are captive to their oath and commitment to serve for however many more months or years, or face mutiny charges.

We, as a nation, have thrown God under the bus He should be driving.  May God have mercy on us, because we sure as Hell don't deserve His blessings.

SPOT ON, JOHN.....

Time to do this and end the IRS, EPA and rest of the alphabet agencies.

Be careful what you wish for.  A constitutional convention can go very wrong. See http://eaglerising.com/11951/meet-woman-convention-states-fears/ and it could end up legitimizing the usurpation of power by the federal government.

I wonder how many of those documents were about al Sharpton or members of congress who are notorious for evading or not even paying the taxes they owe

ZERO

Is anyone really surprised? This is business as usual for this corrupt administration. IF the American people ever find out what REALLY happened during this Democratic tenure in the White House some people will HANG!!!!. Can ya name some of them??.

I could probably name at least 6 or seven that are almost guaranteed to be charged and lois Lerner is the very first and I ONLY say her name first, b/c she is already out of office. We ALL know at least that definetly should be BHO and EH. However, once they are out and ALL of this crap comes to l;ight, WOW. I'm not sure that they have a luxury prison for that many White House Execs.

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
